“Highly Recommend!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

I had booked this hotel to stay while my husband was having open heart surgery at a nearby hospital. Because he took longer than usual to come out of the anesthesia, I had to extend my stay twice. Although the hotel was very busy, Linda at the front desk showed compassion and took the effort to make sure I could stay! A special thanks goes to Linda. Because of her, I will strongly recommend this hotel to family & friends!

This hotel was a convenient place for the four of us to stay for a 4 day extended long weekend trip to beachcomb around Sanibel/Captiva which was a 25 minute drive from Hotel. The room was clean with 2 beds, a kitchenette type area with table but only had 1 chair (office type). We asked staff for another chair which they brought up 2 which was perfect for us. The kitchenette had everything needed to cook, re-heat food and store food in the full size refrigerator. We requested extra bedding, blankets, towels which the staff brought and were very pleasant and courteous. The front desk staff gave us information how to get to places we wanted to go and see. The hotel is set back off a major road and is quiet and peaceful. The prices are very reasonable compared to Sanibel. Many shopping plazas and restaurants are in the area. We had a rental car and was easy to get to around the entire area. If you go in the Spring you can catch a minor league baseball game which we did and was great fun to watch.

Room Tip: Stay on the highest floors which are the quietest.

A convenient location to beaches (Fort Myers and Sanibel/Captiva). Clean, good beds, polite and helpful staff. Carlos was exceptional in going the extra mile and helping us with other family reservations this past weekend.

An exceptional value for a nice place to stay. Almost always full-up so call early for reservations!

Room is clean, we'll apportioned. Nice to have full size fridge and ability to cook. They even provide some pots and plates/utensils. Pool is small, but the gulf is near by. No view, but there isn't a balcony or porch to sit on so nothing to look at anyway. Hotel staff pleasant and tries to be helpful. For very reasonable pricing what can you Ask for.

I checked in very late (after midnight) due to my flight on a Friday. The overnight front desk employee was great! I was by myself and she made me feel right at home with her friendly chit chat. I visited Sanibel on Saturday and Sunday. I loved how convenient it was to drive there from the hotel. Maybe a 15 to 20 min drive depending on where you are going on the island. There are a few restaurants around and a grocery store very close. It was great having the kitchen to enjoy home cooked meals and keeping snacks handy. I did not visit the pool or gym. I also didn't use the laundry facilities but they looked very nice. I was perfectly fine with my room not being cleaned while staying there. The front desk clearly tells you that housekeeping does not come by everyday. The beds were ok. My thinking is, it's not my bed so of course it won't be as comfortable. I can see an issue with sand, but if you shake out your beach stuff in the parking lot, you won't track in as much. I asked for a late checkout on Monday and they were very accommodating. Overall, being Platinum Members with IHG, I was very pleased with my stay, and would come back again.

We wanted to share a compliment about Linda who works at the front desk. She went "above and beyond" to assist us with our reservations. In our opinion, she is a personable, dedicated, professional team player who provided us outstanding customer assistance.
